Kids Caught Reading
Thank you to everyone who sent in pictures. Yikes, I am almost out of them. Will you please send me more? Thanks! Please email to pragmaticmom.com(at)gmail(dot)com.
This week we have picture book author Erica S. Perl with two great photos (and more to come as she generously sent me four!). Marci, a Special Education Reading Recovery teacher helps kids learn to read and comprehend even if they are up to 5 years behind their peers! She’s true unsung hero in our community! Finally, thank you to Capability:Mom with some cuties reading.
This is from one of my favorite picture book authors, Erica S. Perl. Our favorite books of hers include Chicken Butt!, Dotty, and 93 in My Family. I post extensively on her and she turns out to the pre-kids neighbor of a good mom friend of mine. She has a great website if you are interested in finding activities for a book club for kids using her books!
And here is a cutie reading Dotty! We love that book too about a girl with an imaginary friend and a very special teacher that understands!
This is from reader Marci who says, “I am a SPED/Reading Recovery teacher and I have a favorite pic. Not sure if it is what you are looking for, but you are welcome to use it.”
I had to look up SPED and it means “Special Education.” Reading Recovery is: Elementary school children up to 5 years behind in their reading are now catching up in as little as 8 to 10 weeks.
Wow! My hat is off to Marci!
p.s. This looks like Diary of a Wimpy Kid!? This is a book series that every single kid in the world who hates to read can not wait to read. My Mom Friend buys the newest book the day it comes out for her reluctant reader! I wish there were more books like this!
Thank you to Capability:Mom for sending in this cute picture! She has a great blog on turning from a SAHM to a WAHM as both a writer and social media consultant.
